Lullaby: Ode to the Intrepid Speaker, by The Blankie/Carrie
So you have to give a speech
You’re asked to lead a toast
Your boss has put you on the spot
To lead a (semi) friendly roast
Your heart begins to race
Your hands they start to quiver
Your palms they sweat, no topic yet
How will you e’er deliver?
Your failure you imagine, the laughter fills your head
You wonder if you might get lucky and have a heart attack and be in the hospital instead!
Really? You think that would be easier? You don’t mean that
Your failure you regret And you haven’t started yet!
Just write some notes There must be something you can use
Remember we’re all for you
We want you to succeed
So practice if you will
You won’t fall down—you won’t pass out
Although you fear you will
If you prepare, it’s all downhill
With practice it’s a thrill
You spoke for 5-7 You completely hit the mark
Sitting back down feels like heaven because your message lit a spark
You did survive you’re still alive
You’ve totally got this now. You’re confident
Until they ask you next time.
But now you do know how.
